Origin of the PH TECH Data Breach
Current data on the PH TECH data breach comes from a post by the company, “PH TECH NOTIFICATION OF A DATA BREACH.” It details the discovery of a vulnerability in the MOVEit file transfer tool on May 30, 2023. On June 2, 2023. PH TECH discovered that it had been impacted by the breach.
From here, the company took its network related to MOVEit offline and launched an internal PH TECH data breach investigation. Over the following months, the company confirmed that an unauthorized party had accessed its network and removed an unknown number of files. Further investigation revealed that 1.7 million Oregon Health Plan members had their data compromised, including sensitive information such as:
? Date of birth
? Social Security number
? Email address
? Member ID number
? Plan ID number
By August 1, 2023, PH TECH had completed the investigation and begun sending out letters to victims of the breach. These letters detail the types of information compromised on an individual basis. If you receive a letter, read it closely to understand what kind of risks you face in the aftermath of the breach.
